The Sovereign Republic of Sireco is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by First Consul Aetós with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 12.249 billion Sirecans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liberius. The average income tax rate is 8.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Sirecan economy, worth a remarkable 2,556 trillion dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 208,678 dinars, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, the nation refuses to provide international aid, claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense, and children of nonreligious parents are often barred from school festival events. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sireco's national animal is the golden eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Sovereign Church of Sireco.

Sireco is ranked 5,613th in the world and 296th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6,830.39 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
